Golden Tips or How to Choose the Heater by Yourself

Nowadays it is a real challenge to choose a good appliance at a reasonable price and with the topnotch features. We want the heater to serve us long and properly as well as don’t want to get the shocking bills at the end of each month. Specially for people who have decided to choose an appliance by themselves, we have collected “golden tips” that will help to make the right choice.

First of all, you should decide which type of heater do you need. Nowadays there are different types of appliances and all of them have their own advantages and disadvantages. There is no “ideal” option that will be recommended for everyone because it is “the best” one. In our article two main types of heaters have been considered. Let’s check which one of these types will suit you best.

  • Radiator type heaters fit people who are aimed at heating the large rooms. This is the best type of appliances as they can easily warm up the whole premise and don’t cool down as fast as the fan-type heaters. This helps to consume less energy and increases the overall heater’s performance as your room will still be heated even when your appliance is turned off.
  • Fan-type heaters will become an excellent choice for people who need to quickly warm up the small rooms and need the appliance which will be lightweight and portable. Fan heaters can be easily moved from one room to another and because of their fast spreading of the warm air, your office or room will become well heated in the much shorter time period. This type of appliances consumes more energy but you need less time to feel the result of their work, so it depends on your needs.

It can’t be said that one type is better than another as they were designed for different heating needs. For some people, the first type will ideally suit while others will not find better than the second one.

Besides the type of the heater you should take into account some other important factors:

  1. Safety level. We all should understand that safety must be in the first place when choosing a heater. Especially if you are going to leave it working at night or when you are not at home. This is the parameter on which you shouldn’t save.
  2. The design of the appliance. For many people, it is important that the heater will suit the overall design of the room where it is placed.
  3. Energy efficiency. This is clear – the less energy your heater consumes, the less money you will spend to pay bills.
  4. How noisy your heater is. This parameter is extremely important if you are going to use the appliance in the room with small children or simply don’t want anything to disturb you with the annoying buzzing.
  5. Does your heater have a timer or not. If you want to use it when going to bed or come from the work to the already heated room, it is better to choose an option which comes with an auto timer.
  6. The heater’s size. It is an important feature as well as the appliance’s portability. If you are going to move the option from one room to another it will be better to choose the small heater or option which is equipped with wheels.
  7. Whether the heater’s body remains cool while its work. The majority of the modern options have this feature and this is a great advantage as none of us wants to get burnt when accidentally touch the heater which has been working for some hours.
  8. Whether the heater is turned off when is overheated. This feature refers to the overall safety of the appliance and is also very important. Almost all modern options are equipped with the special timer which turns off the appliance when it is close to being overheated in order to avoid hazardous situations.
